Breast plastic surgery is mostly requested by women who do not feel comfortable in their own bodies.

Breast augmentations and breast lifting can have an enormous impact on the patient's self-esteem, body image and quality of life.

On top of having some of the best plastic surgeons in the world, Turkey, and Istanbul in particular, is known for its state-of-the-art clinics, quality of service and very reasonable prices

Breast Augmentation in Istanbul

1. Breast Augmentation

The most commonly performed breast plastic surgery in Turkey is augmentation with implants. Breast augmentation is a surgery to increase the breast size.

Our recommended clinics in Istanbul only use top-quality, certified breast implant brands with warranties.

There are three different ways to place breast implants:

  • The most common technique is an incision on the underside of the breast. This technique leaves a small scar and typically allows breastfeeding in the future. It is one of the most preferred methods.
  • In another technique, the surgeon places the implant through an incision under the arm. This leaves a small scar on the underside of the arm.
  • In the third technique, the breast implant is placed through a cut around the nipple area. This method is not very preferred because it can lead to a loss of sensation around the nipple and cause problems with breastfeeding.

There are two different shapes of breast implants, which come in different sizes and profiles:

  • Round
  • Tear drop

While some clinics increase prices depending on the size of the breast implant, our recommended clinics offer the same prices regardless of size.


During a consultation and check-up one day before your surgery, you and your surgeon will discuss which incision technique, size and shape of breast implants are best for your specific case. X-rays are also taken during the check-up.

The duration of the surgery depends on the surgeon, but generally will last approximately 3 hours.

The stitches will dissolve on their own and don't need to be removed. Three days after the procedure you will be asked to see the surgeon again for a final check-up.

How much is Breast Augmentation in Turkey?

  • In Turkey the average cost of breast augmentation (breat implants) is around 2.000 - 3.000 Euro.

Breast Lift in Istanbul

2. Breast Lift

The second most commonly performed plastic breast surgery in Turkey is a breast lift.

Factors such as pregnancy and breastfeeding, weight loss or the normal process of aging cause the skin to lose elasticity over time.

During breast lifting, sagging breast tissues are lifted and tightened. This is achieved by removing excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissue.

Normally, the procedure takes about 2 to 3 hours.

After surgery, you will be asked to wear a fitted bra day and night for several weeks.

The result is visible immediately, although the final result of the procedure usually shows over the course of the next few months, as it takes some time for the breasts to settle. While scars do occur after a Breast lift procedure, they become soft, thin and white within one to two years, and can usually be hidden by bras and bathing suits.

It is important to remember that breast lift results might not be permanent, as the aging process and gravity will continue to have their effects on your breasts.


Once you arrive in Istanbul, you will visit your surgeon for a consultation and physical exam. Since you will discuss your medical history, please come prepared and bring results of any mammograms or breast biopsies you have. During your physical exam, your surgeon will examine your breasts to determine the best treatment options and incision technique for you. Pictures of your breasts and a mammogram may also be taken for your medical record.

Breast lift surgery generally takes about 2 to 3 hours. It is possible to do the procedure with general anesthesia or with sedation and local anesthesia. Depending on your specific case, the doctor may place stitches deep within your breasts to reshape your breast tissue and, if needed, decrease the size of your areolae. In this process, excess breast skin is removed, the nipples are moved to a higher position, and the breast skin is brought together. Finally, the incisions are closed with stitches, skin adhesives or surgical tape.

After the procedure, small tubes may be placed at the incision sites in the breast to drain excess blood or fluid and are usually removed within a few days.

Normally, you stay in the hospital for only one night. Same-day discharge is also a common treatment approach.

  • The average cost of breast lift surgery in Istanbul ranges between 2700 € and 3000 €.

Breast Reduction in Istanbul

3. Breast Reduction

Since breast reduction is performed for health problems such as chronic back and neck pain and spinal problems, many health insurance companies cover the cost of breast reduction.

Therefore, we recommend that you ask your health insurance provider in your home country, if they cover the treatment cost, and if possible have the breast reduction performed there free of charge.

While the surgeon will aim to achieve symmetry between the breasts, there may be discrepancies in the size and shape of the breasts. It is important to remember that although you will see the results immediately, it may take months for the swelling to completely go down and for the surgical scars to fade.

The result of successful breast reduction surgery can permanently ease the physical pain caused by large breasts. Remember, however, that aging and weight gain or loss can affect the shape and size of the breasts.


Before the procedure, you will be asked to meet your plastic surgeon to discuss your options, your expectations, and the risks and benefits of breast reduction surgery. Your surgeon will examine and measure your breasts, as well as evaluate your medical history. Pictures of your breasts and a mammogram are usually taken for your medical record. In some cases, various lab tests may also be needed.

The procedure is generally done under general anesthesia. There are several techniques available for breast reduction. Your surgeon will use the technique that is most suitable for your particular case. In most cases, an incision is made around the areola and along each breast. Fat, excess breast tissue and skin are then removed to evenly reduce the size of your breasts. Finally, your breasts are reshaped and the nipple and areola are repositioned.

Typically, you will only need to stay in the hospital for one night. Same-day discharge is also a common treatment approach. You will be asked to come for a follow-up visit to check your recovery and to remove stitches.
